Solid US job gains pointing
to a stronger recovery

Associated Press, by Josh Boak

Original Article

Posted By:Zarin, 7/4/2014 6:23:18 AM

The 5-year-old U.S. recovery is gaining momentum from a surprisingly robust job market and moving the economy closer to full health. Employers added 288,000 jobs in June and helped cut the unemployment rate from 6.3 percent to 6.1 percent, the lowest since 2008. It was the fifth straight monthly gain above 200,000 — the best such stretch since the late 1990s tech boom. The stock market signaled its approval. The Dow Jones industrial average surged 92 points to top 17,000 for the first time. The breadth and consistency of the job growth are striking in part because of how poorly

Comments:
AP keeps up the lie about the ´recovering´ economy. Mr. Boak must be trying to get back in the good graces of his editors - most of his recent stories have had more truth in them. This is all tissue paper stats - look at the labor force participation! And the Dow goes up 17,000 on this? We are in trouble.

If, repeat if, the US economy recovers it will be in spite of, not because of, Dear Leader Barack Hussein, who has not taken a single action in 6 years in favour of any recovery whatsoever, on the contrary, which should be a revelation as good as any of his true intentions.

The last thing the Left wants are economically independent Americans. The very last thing.

According to Ed Rogers in the WaPo, last month 523k Full-time positions were lost, 799k Part-time positions were gained. There´s your 280k job gains. No business can afford to pay for Obamacare for Full-time workers.

The reduction in "unemployement"? That´s because more people gave up looking for jobs. 47.7% of Americans are in Full-Time employement.

The economy is still tanking. And the libs are taking victory laps over half-truths and deceit.

You don´t go from a 3% contraction to a 3% growth because you get one better but still anemic jobs report. They´ve been shouting ´recovery!´ for five years now and we haven`t had one yet. Let them stop the quantitative easing (money printing) and see where we really are.

My understanding these jobs were mostly part time. How is the economy recovering on part time work???? As for the stock market, the U.S. is still pumping money into it with money we DON´T have. They are telling us that the unemployment rate is 6.1% when it is really 12.1%. It´s all a fantasy!!!!!

I suspect the number of US reporters who have taken classes in economics can be counted on one hand. Even reporters on the business beat often have problems with basic economic concepts and simple statistical analysis.

Exactly what companies are doing all the hiring? I haven´t heard of any big employment programs. Or is the Federal government throwing our money around and taking on more useless staff to bring more taxpayers to their knees?

Providence had its hand on me, when I took a new job in May. Returned to a large company that I had been employed by before. The facility I left was part of another fairly large company but has been (the facility) in long, slow decline since 2008. Got the news this week that it is essentially closing its doors and moving production overseas. From about 140 employees (a good portion highly skilled toolmakers) to a skeleton crew. Most saw it coming, through years of layoffs.

The six-month job recovery coincides exactly with the truncation of jobless benefits expired at the start of the year proving what many conservative economists said all along: stop excessively long benefits and people will get off the teat and find jobs. Lesson over.

If the country can only create part time jobs for American workers, where are all the new jobs going to come from to employ the tens of millions of illegal aliens and unlimited numbers of their foreign family members that Obama wants to legalize, or allow into the USA, and throw into the legal US labor market?

The country needs 300,000 new jobs a month just to tread water. The only reason the unemployment rate dropped is because so many people used up their unemployment insurance and aren´t counted.

Rep. Bruce Braley (D., Iowa) threatened to sue a homeowners’ association after a chicken crossed onto his vacation home property in Iowa, again raising concerns that the Senate candidate is out-of-touch with farmers in the state, the Iowa Republican reports. The dispute started this spring after one of his neighbor’s chickens appeared on his vacation property in Holiday Lake, Iowa: Braley’s wife Carolyn attended a May 8 meeting of the Holiday Lake Owner’s Association to complain about the fowl. The dispute escalated, causing the association to incur nearly $1,700 in legal fees after Braley called the association’s attorney with an implied threat

The Palestinians accused Israeli extremists of abducting and killing an Arab teenager and burning his body Wednesday, sparking hours of clashes in east Jerusalem and drawing charges that the youth was murdered to avenge the killings of three kidnapped Israeli teens. Seeking to calm the explosive situation, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu urged a swift inquiry into the "reprehensible murder" and called on people to respect the rule of law. Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas said it was clear extremist Jewish settlers were responsible and called on Israel to bring the killers to justice. "The settlers have killed and burned a little boy.

Local Winooski, Vermont restaurant Sneakers Bistro has removed a sign that read, “Yield Sneakers Bacon” citing opposition from a Muslim community member and safety concerns. The sign was put up as part of a city program that allows businesses to post an advertisement in an area where they have helped maintain city flowerbeds. The sign that read “Yield Sneakers Bacon” was removed after a woman, identifying herself as a Muslim, posted in an online community forum, stating she was personally offended by the sign, according to a WPTZ News report.

It´s claimed that Obama was concerned about his administration being Carterized had the mission failed. For President Barack Obama the decision to send in the Night Stalkers was an agonising one.

Back in 1968, when I was 30, my entire life blew up. I had a life plan and it collapsed for no rational reason. I had been a newspaper reporter in New York but left the job to help editor Clay Felker start New York magazine. My marriage was breaking up and I was falling in love with Clay. The song that carried me through those years and all stages of my life is "Both Sides Now" by Joni Mitchell. I first heard the song in 1968, when Judy Collins´s version was a huge radio hit.

The chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff has said that he would not recommend U.S. military airstrikes against Islamic State militants in Syria until he determines that they have become a direct threat to the U.S. Gen. Martin Dempsey, speaking to reporters on board a military plane traveling to Afghanistan, said Sunday that he believes the Sunni insurgent group formerly known as ISIS is more of a regional threat and is not currently plotting or planning attacks against the U.S. or Europe. ISIS has repeatedly made threats to attack the U.S. through social and conventional media. Earlier this month, in a

Democrat Michelle Nunn is running ahead of David Perdue in the race for the U.S. Senate in Georgia. The WSB-TV poll found that Mrs. Nunn has 47 percent to 40 percent edge over Mr. Perdue. The libertarian candidate, Amanda Swafford, received 3 percent, and 10 percent of the respondents were undecided. The winner of the race will replace retiring Sen. Saxby Chambliss. Mrs. Nunn, the daughter of former Georgia Sen. Sam Nunn, is seen as one of Democrats best bets to flip control of a GOP-held seat. Republicans need to flip six seats to win back the Senate.

Veteran journalist Dan Rather told Reliable Sources host Brian Stelter that the scores of pundits calling for action in Iraq, Syria, and elsewhere were reminiscent of the buildup to the 2003 Iraq War, which Rather called a blunder of “historic proportions,” and that hawks needed to be prepared to send their own kids to battle before they so cavalierly recommend it for others.

Civil rights activist and MSNBC host Al Sharpton compared his relationship with President Barack Obama to the relationship between President Abraham Lincoln and abolitionist and famed orator Frederick Douglass. On NBC’s “Meet The Press” on Sunday, Chris Jansing asked Sharpton about a recent article in Politico Magazine labeling him a “surrogate” for Obama’s White House regarding race relations. “First of all, I’m not a surrogate,” he contended. “I have access to the White House in every era going back to Lincoln with Frederick Douglass.

FERGUSON, Mo. — It was 1 a.m. and Michael Brown Jr. called his father, his voice trembling. He had seen something overpowering. In the thick gray clouds that lingered from a passing storm this past June, he made out an angel. And he saw Satan chasing the angel and the angel running into the face of God. Mr. Brown was a prankster, so his father and stepmother chuckled at first. “No, no, Dad! No!” the elder Mr. Brown remembered his son protesting. “I’m serious.” And the black teenager from this suburb of St. Louis, who had just graduated from high

Why Is It So Hard for

America has a deficit of workers. Willing workers. Capable workers. Skilled, or at least semi-skilled workers, who can do a job and do it well. There are at least one million jobs that go begging day after day if only employers could find workers to fill them. This probably seems hard-to-believe. After all, how can America have a worker shortage when we have about 18 million Americans who are unemployed or underemployed? When the real unemployment rate is 12 percent? (Snip) But there are also millions of unemployed Americans who don’t have the skill sets to match what employers are in need

Rep. Paul Ryan said the notion that the House could have unilaterally stopped Obamacare through a government shutdown last year was not a plausible idea to sell the country on. The Wisconsin Republican was addressing a passage from his new book on CBS’s “Face the Nation” in which he described last year’s push toward a government shutdown — in which House conservatives unsuccessfully tried to defund Obamacare — as a “suicide mission.” The purpose of the passage in the book is to try to unify the party, he said, noting that he held back a bit more at the time with party unity in mind. “I don’t think we can succeed if all we do is

Having burned down and looted many businesses that serve their community, some residents of Ferguson (or maybe it is just the outsiders who came in to join the outrage) are realizing that it is going to be inconvenient to have nowhere nearby to buy food, liquor, tobacco, and other merchandise. Burned out stores also hire very few people, in case anyone actually wants a job.
